Na, it's called democratic when you're voting for different political parties, which happened. I know it's very popular for people to throw around dictatorship though.




You sound pretty misinformed on the subject.

The Government does try to ensure kids have a healthy meal as it's in their and the kids best interest. I've no clue what you're waffling on about in your second sentence as that's not at all what the Gov. does or is even doing.

It's up the parent if they want filtering and that's why they'll be asked when this is implemented, they'll be no MI5 or Scotland Yard involved as for some odd reason you think there will be. :s

a) Stating there is a shortage of democracy does not equal saying it's a dictatorship. Please refrain from putting words in my mouth. :)
b) I guess you missed the sarcasm in his post :huh:

If this does get implemented I'm reporting the hell out of the Daily Mail site in the hope it gets put on the filtered list, half their articles are Women in their underwear.

Failing that I'll ask my ISP for a reduction in my bill as they aren't providing me with 100% of the service any more.

and nothing will happen for either lol

and what happens if I were to say NO I don't have Children, when I actually do, will MI5 and Scotland Yard come crashing through the door and arresting me or seizing my computer.

No, you simply have it logged that YOU (the bill payer) has taken responsibility for the decision, and have no legal recourse if your children see porn online. And you may be fine with that. Which is, in turn, absolutely fine. So sorry, where's the problem here?

Always amazes me when politicians and the media do something stupid like this, as if there isn't an army of 12 year olds ready to circumvent the new measures put it place by the 'experts'.

Besides, he should try to promote something I take great pride in providing....... Proper parenting!

Such as shifting the onus of what it freely available over the web, to the parent's discretion? That is EXACTLY what this is doing. Of course, it's only a technological aid in correctly showing kids how to use the web.
